Plus Size Bra Fitting

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: "Bra Fitting Secrets: Plus Size Bra Fitting" Length: 2:03

Women with bra cup sizes larger than a D have an added layer of difficulty when purchasing bras.

Depending on the manufacturer, their cup size may be called different letters. They may go looking for their cup size, not find it, and therefore think the bra doesn’t come in their size. Well, it probably does.

There are three general naming conventions for cup sizes larger than D.

For example, let’s look at cup size triple D, depending on the brand, it can also be called an F cup or an E cup.

If you’re an H in one brand, your H could be 3 cup sizes off in another brand.

So, now you get a taste why larger cup-sized women can get so frustrated trying to find the right size.

At HerRoom, we’ve solved this problem with our Trademarked "Universal Cup sizing system®" — we call it UCS® for short. It uses a simple D system — D1, D2, D3, etc. to help you find your cup size regardless of maker.

Any brand, any bra, every time. Our UCS® system shows up in parenthesis on all our bra size drop downs at HerRoom.

So, say you are a 36F in the Brand Chantelle. Right next to your Bra size is your Universal Cup Size™ D3. Now, when you go any bra brand at HerRoom, simply look for "D3" next to a 36 and you’re guaranteed to get the right cup size. And, you can search on your UCS® size in our search window. It will pull up all your bra options rather than those with just a specific letter.

By the way, you’ll find a sizing chart with size comparisons for every bra on

So fear not. You really do have lots of beautiful bra options in your size. And at HerRoom, all you have to know is your Universal Cup Size™ to quickly find them.

Plus Size Bra Fitting

If you’re larger than a D cup, you’ve probably come across this annoying, yet common, issue: your cup size letter is different across different bra brands. This happens because most bra manufacturers, when they get to cup sizes above a D cup, tend to come up with their own cup size naming conventions. For instance, DDD cup in one brand could be an E cup in another — even though they’re actually the same cup size.

Over the years, we’ve seen many large-breasted women struggle with the frustration this has caused them. So, we decided to create a helpful tool to make sure plus size and full-figured women never have to struggle to find the right size in any bra brand again. Enter: HerRoom’s exclusive Universal Cup Sizing™ System. Or, UCS® for short.

Using this trademarked bra sizing system, all you have to do is tell us your cup size in one of the brands we carry, and we’ll assign you a universal size. The naming we use is D, followed by a number. So, if you’re a DD in most brands, you UCS® will likely be D2. Now, when you shop for bras on our page, you simply look at the bra size field, choose your band size, and then look for the cup size that is matched up to your UCS®.

No matter what brand, what style, and what size you are, every bra we carry includes the UCS® information for every size from DD and up. This takes the guesswork out of trying to figure out what size you are in every brands — and makes it easier and more fun to explore new bra manufacturers, styles and more!

Just because you’re plus size doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fit or beauty. We have hundreds of plus size bras in dozens and dozens of sizes we know you’ll love. Watch our video to learn more, then head over to our Universal Cup Sizing™ System to find your UCS®, and start shopping!
